On Friday night, Laura Ingraham called out Democrats for their reaction to President Trump‘s “sh*thole” remark.
“When they’re cornered and they’re out of options, the Democrats have a nasty––but it’s a predictable habit of racializing everything,” Ingraham began. “They did it to Reagan, they did it to Bush, they even did it to McCain, and of course they did it to Romney. And they’ve been doing it to Donald Trump since the day he announced his candidacy… well it didn’t work then and it won’t work now. But they’re trying.”
The Fox News host blasted Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) for the DACA proposal they brought to Trump. She then pivoted to Trump’s controversial remark, and while she admitted she wouldn’t have used his choice of word, she defended the message behind it, noting that none of the countries he referred to were “Club Med.” Ingraham also mentioned El Salvador’s high crime rate and the terrorism ties in Somalia and Sudan.
“I would not have called these countries what the president did, but they are rank with corruption, repression, and of course it’s obvious, isn’t it, that they offer its citizens little hope in a better life. In other words, they’re hellholes,’ Ingraham continued. “But for the Democrats and their media allies, they’re forever feigning in affinity for the third world. Facts don’t matter! After all, race-baiting the president is so much more fun!”
